Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Any of the Disc World series, Planet of Adventure by Isaac Asimov, Darkness at Noon, The Screwtape Letters, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. As you may be able to tell, I'm a fan of fiction. I personally need recommends for good non-fiction books.

Well, I haven't read it myself but I've been meaning to get my hands on a copy of Hunting the Tiger: the Fast Life and Violent Death of the Balkans' Most Dangerous Man. I was reading Arkan's Wikipedia page and at some point thought, "hold on, this is an interesting enough story that it'd be worth reading in book form," and scoured the internet for what appears to be the best biography of him.

Unfortunately the book is kinda hard to come by. I should really bite the bullet and order a copy for $80...

I used to be a big Discworld fan for a while, but before long Pratchett's smug writing style and painfully Mar(t)y Sue characters began to grate. A lot. I still love The Amazing Maurice, though. And Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is just wonderful. I think I read most/all of the series as a kid.

You want a good and weird non-fiction? I am not a huge fan of history, but read, "The Woman Who shot Mussolini." It is history, psychology, and crazy-real story all wrapped up in one.

Good Omens? its a standalone Terry Pratchett. If you havnt read it and you like him your missing out.
